The moment you declare a set of ideas to be immune from criticism, satire, derision, or contempt, freedom of thought becomes impossible.
~ Salman Rushdie
So well put by Rushdie. That goes for everything, from science to religion, from art to politics…It’s core to what freedom of speech is about. It’s not pretty. You’ll have to tolerate a lot of garbage. But no one will be able to restrict you from thinking what like and saying what you think. As I get older, I feel more strongly about preserving and protecting our right to free speech.
